I had the same impression, even during the opener they sort of sounded like a local jam band, nice sound, tempo, but going nowhere. Warren's leads just meander. Weir's failure to remember lyrics takes away from it some as well.
Mickey's drumming is worse than usual in the recording, just listen to the machine like slamming during bridge on TMNS, blech!
Of course I thought the GD always sounded WAY better without Mickey, he's ruined many a '80's recording IMO.
